I think there's a lot of that, you know? You can add "London" to the scheme, though I suppose it's a weird rectangle then, huh? Anyhow, I can recall even getting quotes out of the boys, like one I wrote down by Lesh, saying the "Beatles were never really into the revolution" (ie, Beatle bashing, which I appreciated at the time as it was "counter pop" if you will, but now, all you hear is how they loved them it seems to me, though most non SF area folks still seem to maintain a somewhat negative view of the whole music scene there if they're "professionals" talking about the past [like CREAM, whomever]).

What have we to show today to best describe/exemplify the revolution? Hereabouts our most concrete format of communication/understanding is based on the recorded music, whether it be live and at our fingertips through this site, or by intimate familiarity garnered by repeated playing of our lps of yesteryear. The other revolution/s we witnessed/embraced (or ignored) back in those days are not my focus – while they might emanate the values/attitudes or beliefs, music is what lasts and brings the message to the later generations. I recycle, compost, and try to buy local. Good luck convincing me that it will make a difference – but I believe music has that potential. It’s a connection that exists between the brain, the ears, and if one is real lucky - the funk bone.

Some bands made it big. The Beatles (and me) can be dealt a lot of shit in our worldly wizened analysis, but by golly I believe they embraced the revolution and brought it to the world.

In 1967 George Harrison wrote one of my favorite tunes of all time, began side two of Pepper with it, and I’ll lay on the floor to this day and listen repeatedly (engaging the repeat function of my deck, because When I’m Sixty Four just spoils it.)

With our love we could save the world.

Hey Tell, this was just a rambling on my part, not sure where it ended up. No harm intended.

Hey, just caught this post and I must say this is a brilliant flash, my good man! The psychedelic music that we love has been the soundtrack to so many individual revolutions and evolutions, mine included. Somehow when I began my experimentation with other states of consciousness, I began to listen to "GOOD" music like GD, Jimi, The Who, Pink Floyd, The Doors, ABB, Beatles. The Beatles were a group that I had returned to after a long hiatus from a childhood love.

For me, the soundtrack is inseparable from the experiences that I've had. I mean, if "the world goes on within you and without you" is not speaking directly to the individual undergoing an evolution in consciousness and revolution against the ingrained Western mindset then I don't know what is!
